Monday’s Theme: Our Hope in Christ
This year’s Catholic Education Week theme is, “Igniting Hope.”
The theme for CEW 2020 was inspired by three sources:
- The recent Papal Exhortation, Christus Vivit, by Pope Francis following the 2018 Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment
- The recent Ontario Bishops’ pastoral letter, Renewing the Promise (2018)
- The Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations by the Institute for Catholic Education (2011)
There are five sub-themes for each day of Catholic Education Week:
Day 1: Our Hope in Christ
Day 2: The Hope Within Us
Day 3: The Hope Among Us
Day 4: Hope for the World
Day 5: A Future Full of Hope
Every year, the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) provides our Catholic schools with a resource kit to help schools prepare for Catholic Education Week. Using these resources, as well as our own developed activities, we have prepared a series of activities, which will highlight how the students and staff at our school are Igniting Hope.
While we are unable to share those resources with you in person at this time, we hope that the daily messages you get from St. Benedict will instill you with hope, and provide you with spiritual nourishment as we celebrate a most unique Catholic Education Week.
